Analytical procedure usually comprise of steps such as sampling, sample preservation, sample preparation, separation, detection and data analysis. After sampling and sample preservation, the next vital step is usually the sample preparation which consumes over 80% of the analysis time. In almost all cases, sample preparation is an imperative step in analysis because many samples are not ready for direct introduction into analytical instrument. Conventionally, solid-phase extraction (SPE), liquid-liquid extraction (LLE), protein precipitation (PP) and dilute and shoot technique have been used for sample preparation during various analytical procedures. The most recent techniques include solid phase microextraction (SPME), Matrix solid-phase dispersion (MSPD) and membrane assisted solvent extraction (MASE).
